In lieu of a traditional women only bridal shower, Emily and Scott opted for a "Couple Shower", where all of their family and friends, not just the ladies, could celebrate their upcoming marriage. They wanted to have a shower that everyone could enjoy - an afternoon that felt comfortable, romantic, and celebratory.
We love the inclusive nature of this "Couple Shower", so ladies AND gents, come take a closer look at this marvelous day captured by Stephanie Hunter Photography in the full gallery by clicking here. Plus don't miss some fabulous examples of just what our Free Printable page has to offer.

We knew we wanted to give them a "Sunday Brunch" and we were thrilled to find out that the charming Lytle Cove Cottage was available for our date. The cottage setting gave us a lovely starting-off point in terms of inspiration. From there, we decided to incorporate the wedding theme, which was a sort of rustic-vintage elegance, and the wedding colors, which were navy, blush, and gold.
I spy with my little eye another Wedding Chicks printable that you can download for free right here! But seriously, How cute is this cocktail card?!
For cocktails, we used an antique beverage cart to house our mimosa bar, champagne punch, and virgin punch. After guests had a chance to eat, sip on cocktails, and mingle, Emily and Scott opened gifts with a little help from their to-be-flower girl. After the festivities, guests departed with seed packet favors tucked away in little muslin pouches - encouraging everyone to "let love grow."
Be sure your guests are pointed in the right direction of fun with our Free Photo Booth Signs To Print and encourage them to share all the pictures they snap and post on instagram with these Wedding Chicks free Instagram Wedding Signs both found on the Free Printable page!
Gold mason jars, vintage milk glass vases, and wooden planter boxes with blush and white flowers sat atop both navy & white striped and burlap table runners . We chose to include some fun elements - like yard games and a social media photo booth.
Golly gee, even more from the Free Printable page! We are pleased as punch that Emily and Scott took advantage of all it has to offer. These Mr. and Mrs. Cake Signs are perfect for a fun afternoon event, or you can frame them and you're instantly set for your formal wedding day!
For the menu, we offered an array of brunch items from bagels, donuts, fruits, veggies, crackers, breads, and cheeses to a homemade biscuit bar complete with jams, marmalade, honey, and butter-creams. The pretty dessert table boasted yummy homemade cakes and cupcakes.
